Electronic Engineer and Computer Scientist at the Australian E-Health Research Centre, CSIRO

I am a electronic engineer and software developer currently employed as a research scientist at the Australian E-Health Research Centre, CSIRO.

I work in a E-health group consisting of psychologists, speech pathologists, occupational and physiotherapists. We research technology solutions to remote monitor people with Parkinson's disease and dementia to better gauge well-being and treatment response.

My PhD was in computer science and computational electromagnetics. Following my PhD, and before coming to CSIRO, I worked as a postdoc at the University of Queensland on microwave imaging for brain stroke detection.

My current research interests include: artificial intelligence, mobile health, natural language processing, computer modelling, signal processing and machine learning.

I am a GNU/Linux and OpenBSD enthusiast and advocate for free and open-source software.

Free as in no restriction (not free as in "free beer").

My favourite programming language is C/C++ and GNU Bash however, I also use Java and (alas) Swift.

My favourite GNU/Linux distribution is Manjaro using the i3 windows manager.
